I am the proud new owner of a 1971 1300 Boler
that needs some serious love. Please bear with me as this is an entirely new world to me, and I am learning as I go!
The front of it looks as if it was backed into, as it has cracked in the front mildly (they tried to cover it with duck tape - which [shockingly] did not work) and throughout the interior as well. It looks like they MAY have tried to repair it from the inside, but there is water leaking through the duck taped area, and being contained in the small squared section underneath the front window. I am in the Edmonton Area, and am looking for someone to potentially help me with this project OR to point me in the direction of someone who can! I have attached pictures for you to view.
The previous owners attempted to reseal the windows
with an unfortunate amount of silicone caulking, which I cannot wait to try and redo (argh.) I was told to pick up Silicone-Be-Gone from a local hardware store - but could use direction on what the next step would be to have them look appealing instead of .... the current situation!
Finally, the door is drastically drooping on the left side (which I have read could be due to the hinges - will place an order for the legendary hinge repair kit!) The frame and axle
were both recently replaced (and look in excellent condition with only minor surface rust) so I am hoping that is therefore not the issue. Are there any other things I should look for beyond the hinge repair kit? The bottom of the door seems extremely misaligned, almost crooked, but is hard to tell if that is because of the hinges again or of a greater issue...
Any help anyone can provide for me would be greatly appreciated; as I said, I am a newborn to this entire community, but am so thankful that this exists!
